One purchase of Atlanta CityPASS gives you access to five of Atlanta’s best and most popular attractions at a HUGE discount. Think: 44% savings!

You aren’t locked into a specific visit date or time, and there are no black-out dates.


You can purchase an Atlanta CityPASS at any of the participating attractions, but we recommend saving yourself some time and getting it online.

From there, you’ll receive printable tickets, or you can access them on your mobile device. Start your adventure right away or within a year of purchase.

We also love that CityPASS offers 365-day risk-free returns.


You get to choose five from a list of six top attractions — so you can choose the adventures that appeal to you the most!

The Atlanta CityPASS admission includes:

  • Georgia Aquarium 
  • World of Coca-Cola 
  • Zoo Atlanta 
  • Plus get admission to two more attractions of your choice:
    • Fernbank Museum of Natural History 
    • College Football Hall of Fame 
    • National Center for Civil and Human Rights 

Note: Some attractions may require reservations, so call ahead!


The best part about Atlanta CityPASS? You save up to 44% off regular admission prices to the included attractions.

Let’s break it down. An adult Atlanta CityPASS is $89 plus tax for adults and $69 for children (3-12 years old). Depending on what attractions you choose — your total, if you paid the regular price — could be anywhere between $132 and $158! No matter which attractions you choose — you’re saving. Significantly!

Regular price for an adult ticket to the Georgia Aquarium is $52.99 (plus taxes and fees) — on its own! Just a bit more, and you have the aquarium tickets, plus tickets to four other spectacular places.


The validity period is nine consecutive days starting with and including the first day you visit an attraction. You have one year from the date of purchase to start using your tickets.


When you have an Atlanta CityPASS ticket, not only do you not have to stand in line after line to buy tickets to individual attractions — in some cases you get to bypass the ticket lines altogether by using your mobile tickets. You can get the fun started even quicker! Savings and easy entry? It’s a win-win.


You’ll also get a coupon booklet along with your Atlanta CityPASS ticket, which will include extra discounts to help you plan your visit within and beyond the attractions. For instance, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Georgia Aquarium for Atlanta CityPASS ticket holders is only $15.

You have the Atlanta CityPASS and nine days to explore — here’s a travel guide to what the Atlanta CityPASS entails, and what you can do to make the most of each adventure!


Dolphins, beluga whales, and whale sharks…OH MY!

The Georgia Aquarium is a must-do when you’re planning an Atlanta adventure. You’re going to love it. Your kids are going to love it. Everyone loves it!

With the Atlanta CityPASS, you’ll get expedited entry and the Anytime Pass – meaning, you don’t have to wait in a long line to enter. Just scan your Atlanta CityPASS tickets at the scanners inside, and bypass the line altogether!

Your Anytime Pass allows you to enjoy the four galleries at the aquarium — like visiting the beluga whales at Coldwater Quest, and seeing the whale sharks in the underwater tunnel in Ocean Voyager. And my kids love climbing through the tunnels to see the penguins up close!

You’ll also be able to go to the Dolphin Celebration show, see the sea lions during their special presentation, and catch a show at the 4D Funbelievable Theater. But, to see these, you will need to reserve a time once you’re inside the aquarium at one of the kiosks, so don’t forget!

It’s a wonderful fun-filled day, that you won’t soon forget. A visit to the Georgia Aquarium isn’t cheap, but with Atlanta CityPASS, you’ll save big.

AFTERWARD: Head on over to the World of Coca Cola, which is also included in your Atlanta CityPASS. You don’t have to re-park — these two attractions are right next to each other.

Learn all about the wonderful world of Coke during a self-guided tour at the World of Coca Cola, located right next to the Georgia Aquarium.

With the Atlanta CityPASS, you’ll get expedited entry during peak attendance times. Just present your tickets at the red entry arch, and pass through the security screening area to start your tour.

Your ticket includes a look at all the exhibitions, like the Pop Culture Gallery, where you’ll see how Coke products have influenced pop culture. Learn how the bottling process works. Learn about the origins of the secret formula, and see the vault where it’s kept.

A visit is not complete without a trip to the Taste It area. Here, you’ll be able to choose from more than 100 different Coca Cola products from around the world — and there are some doozies! Your kids will absolutely love (or hate?) this!

Your ticket also includes a show at the 4D Theater, and an ice cold Coke product for you in the lobby.

AFTERWARD: Head on over to the Georgia Aquarium, which is also included in your Atlanta CityPASS. They are right next to each other, so you don’t have to re-park. Or for something different, take in the views from the Atlanta SkyView Ferris wheel, located right next to Centennial Olympic Park.

Zoo Atlanta is a fabulous weekend choice, for the simple reason that it’s outside. So even on crowded weekend days, it can feel open and you can find spots to escape the crowds.

They opened their new and improved African Savanna area in June 2019, so you can enjoy watching the elephants, giraffes, and zebras in their big habitat.

The seasonal splash pad is a kid favorite, so make sure to pack suits so they can cool off after visiting all the animals!

You can bring your own lunch, snacks, and drinks here, so in addition to the savings you’ll get from Atlanta CityPASS, you’ll also be able to save even more with a little advance packing.

AFTERWARD: After a day at Zoo Atlanta, I doubt you’ll have energy for much more — but I would spend some time letting the kids run around in Grant Park. You don’t have to drive anywhere else, since it’s right there. Bring a blanket and rest your feet, while the kids get any remaining energy out. Expect to see them snoozing in the car on the way home.

With the Atlanta CityPass, in addition to the three attractions mentioned above, you also get to pick two more from this list of three attractions: The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, The Fernbank Museum of Natural History, or the Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame.


A visit to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a wonderful way to learn more about the American Civil Rights Movement and the global human rights movement.

Here, you’ll find some of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s personal papers, and see moments from the Civil Rights Movement brought to life — so you and your kids can get a better understanding of the movement.

You’ll learn about the global human rights movement, and learn about the people who are taking a stand in the fight. Original recordings, videos, touch-screen technology, and original artwork are also part of this powerful museum.

To enter, just present your Atlanta CityPASS ticket at the ticket window on Pemberton Place.

AFTERWARD: There are many local restaurants in the area if you’re looking to grab a bite to eat. The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is also within walking distance of the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca Cola, both included in the Atlanta CityPASS ticket.

Inside, you’ll find all sorts of amazing, hands-on exhibits. You’ll travel back in time and around the world as you discover all the things this amazing museum has to offer. See giant dinosaur skeletons in the atrium, and a dinosaur gallery as part of the A Walk Through Time in Georgia exhibit. You’ll find so many fun and hands-on experiences in the brand new STEM exhibit, Fantastic Forces. Your kids will love NatureQuest — where they can play while discovering the wonders of the world. And this is just a little bit — they have so much more!

Fernbank has fun visiting exhibits throughout the year, too. So if you decide to staycation or vacation here every year, there will always be something new.

Outside, you’ll love discovering the 75 acres that make up WildWoods and Fernbank Forest. Combined, these outdoor experiences highlight the awesomeness of the outdoors through trails, scenery, boardwalks, exhibits, and fun activities for the kids! The kids will love playing on the massive treehouse with rope bridges and fun places to discover.

Bonus: Parking here is free!
